A police chaplain has admitted possessing indecent images of children.

Stephen Talbot, 62, who was based at Cambridgeshire Police’s headquarters, pleaded guilty at Cambridge Crown Court yesterday to 14 counts of making images, four of possessing images and one of perverting the course of justice, the force said. He resigned from his role on October 1 and was arrested the same day.

Detective Superintendent Gary Ridgway, head of the force’s public protection unit, said: “Some images found on Talbot’s computer were at the highest level and his deliberate act to destroy further evidence means we will never know the true extent of his offending.

“Safeguarding the most vulnerable in society is our priority, so making sure we stop those responsible for this type of crime, no matter who they are, is imperative.

“There has been an enormous breach of trust to those Talbot counselled in his role as a chaplain to the force and I welcome the guilty plea.”

Talbot will be sentenced next month.
